Germany’s premier post-metal act THE OCEAN has started work on a new album, to follow-up their latest release: 2015’s split EP with Japanese post-rock legends Mono, entitled ‘Transcendental‘. In anticipation of the upcoming full-length record, THE OCEAN has launched a new live video for the track ‘Rhyacian’, which is taken from 2007’s ‘Precambrian‘. Filmed at the Brick by Brick in San Diego, CA, the video can be viewed at:

Prior to ‘Transcendental‘, THE OCEAN released their sixth full-length in 2013: ‘Pelagial‘ – which was hailed as the group’s “most ambitious record to date” ( Over the course of the crushingly massive record, “tender piano interludes get stomped on by Mastodon-shaped footprints, lush strings work next to bulldozing double-kick work, and, at the end, the submarine crashes at Melvins tempos” ( Since the album and EP’s release, the group has toured the world in support of them, earning much praise for their mesmerizing live shows.
